The Employers’ Organization of Polish Copper (Związek Pracodawców Polska Miedź) was established in 1996 by KGHM Polska Miedź S.A capital group, a leading producer of copper and silver. It was a response to the ongoing revolutionary change in the Polish economy, of ownership in particular, but also as an answer to the strong position of trade unions, which were then the only social partner in negotiations over directions for system transition.
We are the biggest, independent and not-for-profit regional employers’ organization whose goal is to represent and protect employers’ interests in the Lower Silesia (Poland). In its mission, the Employers’ Organization of Polish Copper pledged to protect entrepreneurs from excessive employee privileges and engage in dialogue with government and trade unions. We take responsibility for disseminating good management practices and entrepreneurships through organizing training sessions, seminars and conferences for both members and non-members. Additionally, we provide services to our members with regard to EU policy and a network for information exchange and co-operation throughout industry sectors worldwide.
The Employers’ Organization of Polish Copper is a member of Employers of Poland, the oldest, the biggest and the most representative Polish employers organization.
